I am trying to install the rpm of a package called octave, version 3.2. It needs the libs of a software hdf5-1.6.7. Now i have separately compiled a later version hdf5-1.6.9 and installed it in /usr/local/hdf_5-1.6.9. Is there a method for me to attempt to try to make the octave rpm use the libs of my compiled hdf5 and thereby get it installed? I would like to refrain from installing hdf5-1.6.7.
Thanks, i did what you said & octave got installed. Actually i had made a separate usr.conf file in /etc/ld.so.conf.d for adding libs of some compiled packages. I also ran ldconfig a few times before. But this had completely slipped from my mind. Thanks again.
